Robbie Ray struck out 10 batters against only one walk, but was charged with six runs -- three earned -- in his five innings of work during a loss to the Reds on Saturday.
Ray had great stuff tonight but was victimized by a Jake Lamb three-run error and a Jay Bruce three-run bomb. Ray has a fantastic 132 strikeouts in 109 1/3 innings. His ability to whiff batters has not translated to run prevention so far this year. He will take his 5-9 record and 4.53 ERA into a start in Milwaukee on Thursday. Jul 23 - 11:14 PM

Robbie Ray dazzled in Sunday's victory over the Dodgers, punching out seven over seven scoreless innings.

The left-hander scattered just four hits on the afternoon while walking two. The Diamondbacks bullpen then did their best to try to spoil Ray's fifth victory, allowing five runs in their two innings of work, but luckily they were able to hang on. Ray will bring a 4.49 ERA and 1.51 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Reds in Cincinnati.
Jul 17 - 9:53 PM

Robbie Ray allowed three runs on six hits over five innings in a loss to the Giants on Saturday.

It seems like it's always the same story with Ray -- strong strikeout totals (he fanned seven Giants on Saturday) but too many hits, too many runs and not enough innings. The loss was his third straight, dropping him to 4-8 on the year. Ray will carry a 4.81 ERA and 1.56 WHIP into the season's second half.
Jul 9 - 8:07 PM

Robbie Ray struggled in a no-decision against the Giants on Sunday, allowing four runs on eight hits over his six innings of work.

On the positive side, the left-hander punched out eight on the afternoon while walking two. The Giants struck for two runs in the third inning on a single by Mac Williamson then added another pair in the fourth on a two-run double by Brandon Belt. Luckily for him, the D'Backs rallied late to take him off the hook for a loss. He'll carry a 4.68 ERA and 1.55 WHIP into a rematch against the Giants in San Francisco on Saturday.
Jul 3 - 8:06 PM

Robbie Ray said Tuesday that he expects to make his scheduled start on Sunday.

The left-hander is dealing with a blood blister on his pitching hand. The 24-year-old left-hander has been a disappointing fantasy proposition this season, carrying a 4.59 ERA and 1.54 WHIP into Sunday's matchup against the Giants.
Jun 28 - 6:49 PM

Robbie Ray pitched inconsistently in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays, surrendering four runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Ray struck out eight and walked just two. The big blow against him came early, as Russell Martin clocked a three-run homer in the first inning. Edwin Encarnacion would add a solo shot in the sixth before Ray was relieved of duty. For the season, the 24-year-old southpaw holds an uninspiring 4.59 ERA and 1.54 WHIP. A home start against the Phillies shows next on his schedule.
Jun 22 - 7:21 PM

Robbie Ray allowed two runs over six innings in a win over the Phillies on Friday.

Ray surrounded a two-run triple to Cameron Rupp in the first inning, but he held the Phillies off the board the rest of the way. The southpaw struck out seven and walked just one batter in the victory. Ray has won back-to-back starts to bring his ERA down to 4.44 for the year, but he faces a tough assignment against the Blue Jays next week on the road. Fantasy owners should sit that one out.
Jun 17 - 11:34 PM

Robbie Ray fired 7 2/3 scoreless innings Sunday in the Diamondbacks' 6-0 defeat of the Marlins.

Ray cruised right through the Miami batting order, yielding just three hits -- all singles -- and issuing only one walk. He struck out six. It was by far the best performance of the year for Ray, who now stands 3-5 with a 4.57 ERA and 1.59 WHIP. He does have 78 strikeouts in 69 innings, but the 24-year-old lefty remains nothing more than a matchup-to-matchup fantasy streaming option. Ray will get the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park next time out.
Jun 12 - 6:59 PM

Robbie Ray surrendered five runs in 4 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Rays.

Ray went 2-for-2 and hit his first career homer at the plate, but it wasn't enough to make up for his lousy night on the mound. He gave up eight hits and walked three, so the damage could have been even worse. Ray is 2-5 with a 5.14 ERA. The Diamondbacks were expecting more and could look to replace him in the rotation once Shelby Miller returns.
Jun 7 - 2:13 AM

Robbie Ray gave up three runs in just five innings of work in Wednesday's extra-inning loss to the Astros.

Ray missed bats, striking out a half dozen batters, but was once again too hittable. He allowed six hits and his 9th homer of the year, which all contributed to his lackluster performance. The lefty has struck out an impressive 66 batters in just 57 innings; that's just less awe-inspiring when it's paired with a 1.42 HR/9 and a 4.74 ERA. His .360 BABIP suggests that better times could be around the corner, but sometimes high BABIPs are deserved when they're the result of getting torched game-in and game-out. He'll try to turn it around against the Rays in his next start.
Jun 2 - 12:15 AM

Robbie Ray allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Padres.

The Diamondbacks need Ray to step it up with Shelby Miller and Rubby De La Rosa absent, but here he is 2-4 with a 4.67 ERA. Quite a bit more was expected from him going into the season. He's still fine to own in NL-only leagues, but he's not really even a streaming option in mixed leagues right now.
May 28 - 1:28 AM

Robbie Ray allowed two runs -- one earned -- over five innings in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

His final line doesn't look that bad -- Ray gave up just three hits but walked four while striking out five -- but he was terribly inefficient, needing 102 pitches to get through five innings. It was still, by most accounts, a step in the right direction, leaving him with a 4.18 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 52/24 K/BB ratio through 47 1/3 innings this year. Ray will look to get back in the win column, and to pitch deeper into the game, Friday against the Padres.
May 21 - 7:03 PM

Robbie Ray held the Yankees to two runs in seven innings to cruise to a win Monday.

The Diamondbacks supported him with nine runs while he was in the game and scored 12 times overall, so Ray had it easy tonight. It was just his second win in eight starts this season, and it's the first time he's completed seven innings. He'll keep getting better, but he's not very interesting in mixed leagues right now.
May 17 - 2:41 AM

Robbie Ray surrendered five runs -- three earned -- over 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Rockies.

Ray escaped with a no-decision because the Diamondbacks mounted a big comeback (and then lost on a go-ahead homer by Nolan Arenado in the bottom of the eighth). Ray struck out nine, but he walked three and surrendered nine hits. He'll carry a 4.84 ERA and 1.75 WHIP into his next start at home against the Yankees.
May 11 - 6:32 PM

Robbie Ray allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Marlins.

Ray gave up six hits and a walk, striking out five in the loss. He's had some clunkers, but the poor guy can't catch a break, either -- Thursday was the third consecutive game his team was shut out in one of his starts. Through six starts, the southpaw has a 4.70 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 32/16 K/BB ratio over 30 2/3 innings. It doesn't get much easier Tuesday when Ray takes on the Rockies in Colorado.
